Shonna Young came to Buena Vista City Schools in December of 2012, filling the elementary guidance counselor position at both Enderly Heights and Kling. Despite coming in mid-year, Ms. Young stepped in effortlessly and quickly became a trusted and dedicated colleague, as well as a positive role model for the students at both schools. In addition to meeting with students individually and in groups, Ms. Young helps with Child Study, attends eligibility meetings, and keeps up with attendance issues at each school, sending out letters and meeting with parents to discuss the importance of regulary attending school. When asked to describe Ms. Young in one word, it was quickly apparent just how much Ms. Young has affected those around her. Words like, outstanding, energetic, caring, involved, wonderful, and sweet were just a few of the many positive remarks spoken about Ms. Young. It is both a privilege and an honor to work with Ms. Young and we look forward to having her in our elementary schools for years to come.
